Construction of wind-energy transmission line to create Missouri jobs

The company behind the Grain Belt Express Clean Line, a high-voltage transmission line through Missouri and Illinois, announced partnerships with suppliers in Missouri that will create new jobs in the state.

Clean Line Energy Partners, a Houston-based company, plans to build a high-voltage direct-current transmission line to transfer 3,500 megawatts of power generated by wind farms in southeastern Kansas, across Missouri and Illinois, to Indiana and farther east. The line would cut across the center of Missouri, north of Interstate 70.
